A Message From Our President. . .

Dear United States McCraw Family Association Members and Friends,
Every two years we look forward to welcoming our family and friends to our biennial reunion. As you know, our event was scheduled for this summer and preparations were being finalized for a great time in Fairhope, Alabama. But these are unprecedented times and although it was unthinkable only a short time ago, we have been forced to consider canceling our signature event. We delayed making a decision and had hoped the pandemic would abate and allow us to hold our reunion as scheduled. Current guidance from the CDC recommends we stay home as much as possible and avoid close contact. They warn that staying in temporary accommodations (hotels, motels, and rental properties) may expose you to the virus through person-to-person contact and possibly through contact with contaminated surfaces and objects. They also state that traveling to visit friends and family increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19 and recommends that people avoid all non-essential travel, especially if you are at higher risk of severe illness.
Considering the advisement from the CDC and with our utmost concern being the health and safety of our family members the board has voted to cancel the 2020 reunion. While this news is unfortunate, we hope it also provides a level of certainty in otherwise uncertain times. As of now, our plan is to reschedule this year’s Fairhope Reunion for the same venue in 2022. You can keep up to date with what's going on by checking here on our website or on our facebook page.

researchers who created the wonderfully extensive book of family history, “It Is McCraw Not McGraw,” that we all benefit from. You can learn from and participate in our ongoing DNA project and follow along as some of our members attempt to peel back the centuries to find our family's first home place in America. Above and beyond all that, I hope that you will join our Association. The support from your membership will not only help us to continue the worthy undertakings noted above but will also provide you with fellowship from your distant relatives located all over the US. The investment is minimal, but the benefits available to you will be priceless.
Please feel free to reach out to us if we may be of assistance to you in any way.
